Make sure you visit CC's if you are ever in Houma. It is wonderful!! We had a very large group and our wait staff did an amazing job.

I've eaten here numerous times when in town on business. Food again exceeded my expections and waiter worked her tail off making dinner enjoyable. Gumbo and turtle soap very good. Shrimp and oysters fresh and cooked to perfection.

We really enjoyed this restaurant! We had boiled blue crab, crawfish, shrimp, garlic (interesting), corn, & red potatoes. Everything was very delicious! I think the best part about our visit were the locals who came to our table once they learned we are originally from the north east and have had most steamed seafood, they wanted to know what we...

Some business friends of ours wanted us to meet them there for supper so we did. We had never even heard of "Critters" but now we know first hand what all the rage is about. The was a true "experience" and one that we will repeat often. Oh...and the food and service is wonderful too !!

We have been here several times and it is always fun and unique. The food is truly the best cajun food we have eaten any where. The owner will bend over backwards to make sure everyone is happy and having a good time. We always meet people from other states that make it a point to eat at critters when... More

My wife and I ate here twice while staying in Houma for a few days. This is a great Cajun restaurant and a place the locals love. The fried catfish was very good. This restaurant has a fun atmosphere. Cajun Critters also has a full bar.

We aren't sold on this place but would give it a second try just to see if tonight was a bad fluke. Gumbo wasn't bad. Crawfish had to be returned because they were cold when they came out. The second batch was slightly warmer. We waited forever to get a table even though there were several available however the place... More

We had been looking for blue crabs and crayfish so we went on TripAdvisor to check for recommendations. Well....it wasn't long before we were also elbow deep in boiled crabs and crayfish too! They were really, really good! The service was great and the server even suggested some things that we might like to try. The atmosphere is as we... More

This eatery is decorated to the max. Unfortunately it is very hard to see from the road. 3 passes got us there in case hubby is short tempered. I had Crawdads for the 1st time and they were very good. You order by the pound. 1 pound was plenty for me. Very congenial waitstaff. A fun place with very good... More
